SR Boss Combos you really hate?

SR is kinda like playing chess vs AI :stuck_out_tongue: I don’t know if being forced to exploit enemys AI and tricking them is perfect design but it’s probably best possible in such mode, no agro abuse -> most builds can’t make a step into realm, leave it as it be :grinning:

You’re going to love naked Cr then. :stuck_out_tongue:

Read the bottom of my post.

If you enter the boss room with the camera facing south-ish, the bosses will not insta aggro. Because you dont see them their aggro range is lower. You might pull only Kubba as his aggro range is the largest.
This works even in chthonic hell circle arena.
You can further extend this, by rotating the edge of the camera towards a boss and pulling him from the others.


My first 170 gladiator back in the past was naked, I was too ignorant to look at environment so I didn’t realize i can take buffs :stuck_out_tongue: CR is still on my list have-to-learn.

Btw. MQ has 4mln health in gladiator, in 75-80 shards it’s over 9mln, rest bosses are around 8mln if I remember correctly, fighting them all at the same time is not fun with squishy build :sweat_smile:

Yeah. :stuck_out_tongue:

That’s why I don’t like SR. It’s DPS for spanks ^^

That’s really interesting…HUGE game changer, really. Any chance I can request a video demonstration? It’s not that I don’t believe you, I’d just like to see it in action

I would like to see it somewhere too, when I was watching videos top players like John Smith or Lacrimosa, they were always north. Gonna try it later myself.

I just tried it after dying on the opposite side of the arena to give myself some breathing room when I teleported in, and I think it worked! Instead of 3 bosses killing me instantly, I only aggro’d two, which is very manageable. I was about ready to give up. Also, I had forgotten to attach rune of displacement to my char. I’m still new to what is needed to succeed in ultimate SR.

Sorry but windows game capture decided to not work today.

Best I can do is screen shots.

Here are pics of entering the hell circle, with the camera facing the optimal angle.

Does rotating the camera AFTER entering affect anything?

P.S: Thanks so much for doing this. <3

Rotating it towards the bosses will aggro them.

I added another pic showing rotating the bottom right corner towards the bosses while standing still.

Try to guess, working as intended or not? :zantai:

cousre not. what does the orientation of the map have to do with enemy aggro range?

Checked myself if I can pull bosses with just camera rotation and… I could pull bosses without moving an inch, just rotating camera :laughing: If I would know it earlier.

Gravathul + Kuba + Aether snek +1 is pretty much cancer for every single build in the game.

Aleksander + Anasteria + Fabius +Mad queen is an exotic that when you see it, the first option is to alt+F4.

Also my head aches every time i see any combo with the superboss korvaak in it. What a slog.

Good topic. I think they need to tweet the boss combination in Shattered Realm.
A few of the bosses just seem to be impossible to beat if you don’t have strong Life Reduction Resistance. This key defensive stat is one of the reasons why build-variety consists of Soldier as he has the toggle with Life Reduction Resistance. Almost all bosses have some of sort Life Reduction hits.


  1. Grava needs to have reduced life reduction damage
  2. Reaper needs to have a bit reduced physical damage
  3. Mad Queen needs to have around 15% life reduction hits instead of 25% with that vicious melee attack

In most fights, Grava, Kaisan and Reaper tend to be aggro fast. They shouldn’t be combined together as it is nearly impossible to beat Grava and Reaper chasing you around.

I really dislike that SR & Crucible are the best places to farm legendaries by a huge margin. SR is fun but if it invalidates everything else? Meh

Steps of torment are also viable place to farm for legendary gear and blueprints.

We’ll have new dungeon soon too.

But to me the most efficient way is Gladiator.

slathzarr and grava are an awful combo due to spam fumble pools

Crucible is so boring though. And the fact that u need 3x clear every time to recover tributes make my finger hurt.
